Networking Requirements

In figure 1, Switch connects to the internet through gateway switches Switch A and Switch B. To ensure nonstop service availability, a VRRP group in standard mode needs to be configured on SwitchA and SwitchB.

Figure 1. Networking of Standard VRRP


Procedure

Switch A

Step1         Configure VLAN.

    admin@SwitchA# set vlans vlan-id 100

    admin@SwitchA# set interface gigabit-ethernet ge-1/1/2 family ethernet-switching native-vlan-id 100

    admin@SwitchA# set vlan-interface interface vlan100 vif vlan100 address 192.168.1.1 prefix-length 24

    admin@SwitchA# set vlans vlan-id 100 l3-interface vlan100

Step2         Create a VRRP group.

                   admin@SwitchA# set protocols vrrp interface vlan100 vif vlan100 vrid 1

Step3         Configure the VRRP version number to v3.

   admin@SwitchA#set protocols vrrp interface vlan100 vif vlan100 vrid 1 version 3

   By default, the system uses VRRPv2.

Step4         Enable the VRRP function.

    admin@SwitchA# set protocols vrrp interface vlan100 vif vlan100 vrid 1 disable false

                   By default, the VRRP function is enabled.

Step5         Configure a virtual IP address for the VRRP group.

                   admin@SwitchA# set protocols vrrp interface vlan100 vif vlan100 vrid 1 ip 192.168.1.5

Step6         Configure the priority of a device in a VRRP group.

    admin@SwitchA# set protocols vrrp interface vlan100 vif vlan100 vrid 1 priority 250

Step7         Commit the configuration.

    admin@SwitchA# commit

Switch B

Step1         Configure VLAN.

    admin@SwitchB# set vlans vlan-id 100

    admin@SwitchB# set interface gigabit-ethernet ge-1/1/3 family ethernet-switching native-vlan-id 100

    admin@SwitchB# set vlan-interface interface vlan100 vif vlan100 address 192.168.1.2 prefix-length 24

    admin@SwitchB# set vlans vlan-id 100 l3-interface vlan100

Step2         Create a VRRP group.

                   admin@SwitchB# set protocols vrrp interface vlan100 vif vlan100 vrid 1

Step3         Configure the VRRP version number to v3.

   admin@SwitchB#set protocols vrrp interface vlan100 vif vlan100 vrid 1 version 3

   By default, the system uses VRRPv2.

Step4         Enable the VRRP function.

    admin@SwitchB# set protocols vrrp interface vlan100 vif vlan100 vrid 1 disable false

                   By default, the VRRP function is enabled.

Step5         Configure a virtual IP address for the VRRP group.

                   admin@SwitchB# set protocols vrrp interface vlan100 vif vlan100 vrid 1 ip 192.168.1.5

Step6         Configure the priority of the device in a VRRP group.

    admin@SwitchB# set protocols vrrp interface vlan100 vif vlan100 vrid 1 priority 100

Step7         Commit the configuration.

    admin@SwitchB# commit

Verify the Configuration

•     After the configuration is complete, run run show vrrp command to view the configuration information of VRRP group. The result of show command on the master is as follows.

admin@SwitchA# run show vrrp
Interface: vlan100
Vif: vlan100
VRID: 1
Load-balance: disable
State: Master
Master IP: 192.168.1.1
Virtual MAC: 00:00:5e:00:01:01
Preempt: enable
Adver Interval: 1 
Priority: 250
Virtual IP: 192.168.1.5

•     When showing MAC address table on the downstream switch to check the MAC address of the device, you can see the virtual MAC entries corresponding to the virtual IP address of the VRRP group.

•     On PC1 and PC2, ping the virtual IP address 192.168.1.5 to check the connectivity with the devices in VRRP group.
